Air Fryer Essentials: Cajun Shrimp

Andy Anderson !


I love shrimp, and I love how the air fryer makes them so yummy. This is a simple recipe that I like to make into shrimp tacos; however, they are wonderful over some nice long-grain white rice.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

  2. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
